Some poems of poet Ms Rajashree Mohapatra
A solitary bird
How freely she flies
I envy her
she touches the clouds silently
and shines under the golden beams of sun
As the sun fades
and the clouds roll away
She flies back with an enchanted soul
I close my eyes
and fall into a pool of fathomless pain
Still I hear her call
Time and again
my heart knocks
tick tock tick tock .
If it were a paper boat …
Might not be destined to flow
If it were cursed …
Might not live to last long
If it were the envy of unknown Gods …
Might have melted in the magma chamber
And might have lost for ever
But its our love that is never lost
It’s wings can beat the air
like Jonathan seagull
Life has many a folds
Some remain unscreened and untold
And life glitters like gold
Verses can’t explain it all
Words fall short
In the silent valley of hearts
although a river overflows.
You have said once
Stories are trivialities
But life alone is tranquil and beautiful.
TALE OF EMBEDED SECRETS
A tangled jungle of fear and hopes
Cooks up illusions
amidst a heathen darkness.
A drowsy bird
That tweets a tale of beauty and wonder
Innovates ways to wade
Through a dull book of distressing emotion
The tale so weaves a necklace of jewels
That reveals at each curve
A directive for hidden secrets
Embeded in the musk of unspoken sorrows
And bleeding veins.
A stone wall stands stunned,
Embracing the pagan secrets of music
May not be exactly melancholeous….
